Ground Control Suspension

I recently watched the video by LSXMatt where he bought the rear portion of the ground control weight jack set up from another member who only needed the fronts. I spoke to ground control and they absolutely refuse to sell only the front or rears. I already have a coilover set up on the front and want to get the rear weight jacks. Would anyone have any interest in buying the fronts if I bought the kit?
Thanks,
Chris

Re: Ground Control Suspension

If you don't have to absolutely have Ground Control rear weight jacks, you could use Allstar Performance spring spacer for the rear:

and just get the right spring for them:

Re: Ground Control Suspension

Thanks for the responses, guys! I may end up going with ground control and posting the fronts for sale. Not sure yet.

Do you have a part number? I don't see a kit for the rear. Unless your post was a typo.

Re: Ground Control Suspension

All I'm seeing for the rear is coil overs, which are definitely more expensive.

Are they designing a set that you know of? If so that's exciting.
